Facebook changed my contacts email address

The new facebook change, changed the email address of anyone in my contact list who has a facebook account.

Can I put this back to the way it was?

I want to be able to have the contacts real email address not the facebook email address in my contact list.

I noticed Facebook changed everyone's default e-mail address to the Facebook address it assigned. Lame! Anyway, I looked through my contacts and the real e-mail addresses are still there. They haven't been overridden by the Facebook addresses. This may be because I use the browser for Facebook and not the app.

What happens if you choose to view only your phone and Google contacts and not Facebook contacts? Do their real email addresses return? I know this isn't a long-term solution if you want your FB contacts in your address book. I'm sorry, I'm at a loss for an answer right now, since mine didn't change. But maybe someone else will have an idea.
